Washing Bay/Peatlands Park

Saturday 21st July, 13:00, Washing Bay and Peatlands Park: 

Meet at Washingbay Centre, Aughamullan, Coalisland, H 899 660

Washing Bay is the first known location in County Tyrone for the Purple Hairstreak. It’s a long shot, but we hope to find it again! We’ll also be visiting Peatlands Park where there may be another opportunity to see the Large Heath and other moorland species. Butterfly Recorder Ian Rippey will be leading.
